Authors showcase

A group of 15 talented QUT alumni authors gathered at the newly upgraded Gardens Point Library to discuss their work as part of the inaugural Alumni Authors Showcase.

The event was opened by author and screenwriter Benjamin Law and his presentation The Family Law – From Page to Screen, giving insight into the process he faced in transforming his beloved novel into the SBS television series, which is currently in production for its second season. Authors also took part in panel discussions on entering the industry and getting published, and were available for one-on-one discussions with guests and book signings.
